Mark 2:4-5 (NKJV)
And when they could not come near Him because of the crowd, they uncovered the roof where He was. So when they had broken through, they let down the bed on which the paralytic was lying.
When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”
The four men decided to remove the roof of a house that didn’t belong to them; they didn’t mind about who will repair it or what will be the cost involved; the desire for their ‘friend’ to be healed was more than the obstacles encountered. They removed the roof; I call it innovation; others call it “disturbance” but JESUS instead of rebuking them, HE saw their action as ‘Faith’.
Decide to put your faith into action by doing the unprecedented, take risks in order to achieve your GOD given goals for your life, family and community. Remember: the greatest mistake we can make is to be afraid to make a mistake. There is hope!
